    Damn... so I asked if any other tickets were available, and I was offered a pair in the Greys, so a worse section, but these are behind the goal where the Habs shoot twice. Key thing is, they cost 2/3rds the price of the other ones, so it's a pretty major difference.

    Debateable on what is better. These are in a better section, but 5 rows back.

    edit: 10 rows

    Sitting behind the goalie isn't great, IMO. It's cool when the action is in front of you, but annoying when it's on the other side. Plus your tickets would be in the Family Section, which is only mildly better than the Molson Ex Zone. What section are the original tickets in?

    Either way the first seats to become available for season tickets are always going to be behind the goalie. You have the chance to move around every year based on what becomes available, so in a sense you get put on the waiting list for better seats automatically as a season ticket holder. The difference is, the normal waiting list only allows you to say no one time. So If I turn down seats this year, I have to take seats next year or else I'm off the list completely. And next year, it'll be the same story in terms of what is available.

    Neither of the options are in the Molson Ex or Family Zones, but they are adjacent.
    My options, basically, are either section 311, first row whites (top of balcony) or section 328, middle row greys.

    311: Behind Habs goal, so you get to watch Price get scored on 2/3 periods. Pretty decent seats in a not so great section.
    328: Behind net where Habs shoot 2x. Approx 10 rows higher than the other tickets, and below Family Zone (but technically close). The kicker is they are 2/3rds the price of the ones above.

    Views:
    310 first row (one section off, but close): Centre Bell, section 310, row AA, seat 10 - Montreal Canadiens vs Boston Bruins, shared by mathewlodge
    328, virtually the same seats I'd get: Centre Bell, section 328, row C, seat 15 - Montreal Canadiens vs Dallas Stars, shared by profan9

    The view is better on the pricier tickets (obviously) but what you get to see is less appealing. The price difference is significant. I am leaning towards the cheaper tickets with the goal being to upgrade next year depending on how it goes.

    Didn't know where to post this but anybody knows where I can watch the habs games online? I'm looking for high quality type of thing and I'm willing to pay for it, I just won't have the cable this year. Thanks!!

    Fair enough. If you weren't expecting it to come this year, maybe you could always say no and then set the money aside for next year and think about what you'd want. Of course you risk getting possibly worse tickets of waiting another year or two if the team does well and people keep their tickets and such.

    That said, I've always felt that first row whites are the best seats in the house, and you have a chance at those. I'd be pretty tempted to go that route. And since I'm helping you think through this process, I'd expect you to give me a good deal on a pair of tickets at some point down the line ;)
    All of the week day games, as well as games on Sundays will be on RDS. You could sign up for their subscription service here: https://www.rds.ca/emissions/en-direct?axisVideoId=68996

    If you'd rather get it in English, most games, including weekend games, should be available on Sportsnet Now, here: Sportsnet NOW is your access 24/7 live sports online in Canada

    I don't know if it's still the case, but the games on HNIC on CBC used to be available to stream for free to anyone on cbc.ca.

    I believe Tsn broadcasts regional games, not Sportsnet.

    You would be correct.

    Sportsnet had them up until the end of the 2016-2017 season. TSN got the rights back in 2017-2018.

    welcome to hell, they don't like people like us willing to pay money to watch our team play

    The simplest legal method is still NHL Live + a good VPN, otherwise you'll have to subscribe to multiple things including some cable services

    Or just do what @kalessin did years ago, and go watch all of the games at the bar. You'll end up spending more money than you would've on cable, but at least you'll drink too much, feel like **** the next morning, and put on a lot of weight.

    They'll have to figure something out soon, I bet this is a large market. Fortunately for me, my new roomates has RDS. I didn't know about that so that's nice!
